Court declines to consider delaying Ga. execution

ATLANTA (AP) - A federal appeals court has declined to consider a request filed by the lawyers for a Georgia death row inmate seeking to delay their client's execution until after the U.S. Supreme Court weighs in.

Brian Kammer, a lawyer for Warren Lee Hill, had filed the request Monday. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday sent him a letter saying the court was returning his motion unfiled because Hill's case before the court is closed.

Kammer asked the U.S. Supreme Court in May to review new evidence he has submitted. The Supreme Court is currently scheduled to consider whether to take up Hill's case on Sept. 30.

Kammer says he now plans to ask the Supreme Court to delay the execution until it has taken action on the case.
